Squirrel Cuckoo (Piaya cayana)

There are plenty of trees around home, and squirrels normally swing and run on its branches. This day I saw something jumping around the branches and dismissed it, thinking it was a squirrel, but something about the movements was not quite right, so I took the camera and to my surprise, I was watching a bird! So I approached from below and took a single shot. Later when I reviewed the image vs. the field guide, it turned out it was this species, the Squirrel Cuckoo.
